As far as having a job after next Friday, no the meeting didn't go well. As far as having a nice chat with my boss, it went alright. He is leaving, I am caught up on my projects. Without him to wrangle projects and funding there is no work for me. Maybe the next Manager will come in and want a GIS/data monkey, maybe not.
I had a pretty unique deal. It's going to be hard to find something to replace it. I was working from home, reporting in irregularly, doing projects that involved a lot of old data and generally a mess. It meant my kids didn't have to be in daycare all the time, and I didn't have to commute all the time. It also got very tedious and frustrating. While finding another job is probably the best idea, being able to afford another job will be the question, as will affording to stay home for now.
My poor boss isn't going to have it easy either, he is going to be living 300 miles away from his wife.
